There is a clean New Orleans at the 6-6-70 show....
Even better, there's a New Orleans>Searchin'>Good Lovin' (Jerry sings Good Lovin') on 8-29-69:

(Also note that after High Time, the audience tries to get the band to play Hey Jude! But Weir says, "Hey Jude is a lost cause." Garcia explains, "We could do it but Weir forgot the words.... The first request that blows our minds we'll do.")

Thank you LIA... but don't those other two versions seem awfully, uh, 'relaxed', compared to the 11/8/70? It's Bill's propulsive drumming that ices the cake on that version for me. Those other two, they just kind of shuffle along. They ARE better-recorded though...

Well, no question the 11/8/70 show is better - but what interests me about the 8/29/69 New Orleans>Searchin' is that it shows that medley didn't pop out of nowhere in Nov '70....I bet they were doing it in '65! Probably kept playing it at soundchecks or warmups.

True. Garcia obviously thought that the riffs in the two songs were similar (HE plays them that way), although I think of them as wildly different songs, probably due to hearing Gary U.S. Bonds and The Coasters prior to the Dead's versions. Anyway, thanks are due you; it was nice to hear some contrasting versions.
